Bawumia pledges bold solutions and new policies in bid for Ghana’s presidency



Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of Ghana’s governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), made a compelling case for his election as the country’s next president during a vibrant rally in Kwahu Mpraeso.

Addressing a mammoth crowd gathered after a special Easter health walk, Bawumia emphasised his track record as Vice President, positioning himself as a harbinger of fresh ideas and bold solutions for Ghana’s future.

Highlighting the contrast between his candidacy and that of John Mahama, his main opponent, Bawumia asserted, “A vote for me is a vote for bold solutions. And a vote for my opponent is a vote for old solutions.”

He underscored his lack of previous presidential experience as an asset, stating, “I have not been President before… By the grace of God, if you give me the opportunity, I will do more as President and resolve many issues.”

Proposing substantive policy changes, Bawumia outlined his vision for a revamped tax system featuring a flat tax rate and tax amnesty for businesses and individuals. He also pledged to prioritize technological advancement by training one million young Ghanaians in coding and software applications if elected. Additionally, he announced plans to revise the National Service Scheme, making it non-compulsory for graduates who secure immediate employment.

Expounding on his Ghanacard to passport policy, Bawumia advocated for streamlining passport application processes by leveraging existing biometric data captured in the Ghanacard database. He argued that eliminating redundant biometric verification processes would enhance efficiency and convenience for passport applicants.

Asserting the NPP’s superior performance in various sectors, Bawumia cited achievements in education, economic indicators, healthcare infrastructure, tourism, sports, and digitalization. He urged party members to unite and work diligently towards securing victory in the upcoming 2024 presidential election and parliamentary majority.

The rally, attended by thousands of enthusiastic participants, featured prominent NPP figures including National Chairman Stephen Ayesu Ntim, General Secretary Justin Kodua Frimpong, as well as several Ministers, Deputy Ministers of State, and aspirants from the recent NPP presidential primaries. Dr. Bawumia’s address resonated with supporters, setting the stage for a dynamic and competitive electoral campaign ahead.
